, it looks like a long-term stalemate is a possible outcome. tonight's question -- will the u.s. and our allies have the political will to continue the longer efforts to drive gadhafi out of office if the war boggs down? and can we accomplish our objectives within the constraints of the u.n. resolution? we go to nic robertson in tripoli. it seems the gadhafi regime continues to try to spin a story. what are you seeing, and what are they trying to tell you? >> reporter: they continue to try show us that there were civilian casualties here. they believe if they can do that that will weaken the resolve. they took us to a farmhouse on the outskirts of the city where a missile or rocket had impacted in the farmland. they told us there would be civilian casualties. the stories we heard didn't add up. it was clear something had impacted, but there were no casualties to see and conflicting stories about who and what had been hit. what we did see driving out of the city to the east, clear signs of how the coalition aerial bombardment is effective here. we saw damaged bases, damaged buildings, and
are not seeing a difference on their level. the u.s. has handed over the no-fly mission over to the coalition partners and now about to hand it over to nato, the mission in terms of conducting flights on gadhafi and armament on the ground. there were several strikes around misrata and tripoli. all of them hitting ground targets. we spoke with an official who said even though a lot of the fighting is moving closer to the cities where you have a greater danger of civilian casualties, that will not stop some of the strikes outside of the city's on gadhafi's forces. >> you cut off the supply line. if they are at the front of the fight and you cut off the ability to sustain that fight, you significantly impacted not only their ability to fight, but the will to fight. >> one big difference, the tomahawk missiles are no longer flying. the u.s. is already shot off about 160 of them. mostly in the first few days. the cost of those tomahawks is well over $200 million in costs. also the f-15 fighter jet that went down, that is tens of millions of dollars. the cost to keep refuelling a lot of these plane
congress first and defined the mission better n his weekly address, the president said the u.s. should not intervene every time there is a world crisis, but this is not a moment to stand idly by. >> when someone like gadhafi threatens a blood bath that can destabilize an entire region and when the international community is prepared to come together to save million thousands of lives, then it's in our national interest to act, and it's our responsibility. this is one of though times. >> the president will address the nation about libya monday night and cnn will bring it to you live with coverage starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern on monday night. >>> we have seen protests in the streets and nations seeking democracy, and today marching and shouting in a country where democracy already exists. why brits are up in arms over parliament's plans to cut spending. >>> and a police standoff with an interesting ending. why the suspected cop killer demanded local news stations carry his surrender live, and they have it. >>> you have a voice on this show. join us on our social media sites. check us ou

of the military operations in libya, the enforcement of the no-fly zone will now fall to that body. though the u.s. and allies will continue to manage the bombing campaign. a role president obama made clear he's eager to give up. and joining me paul wolfowitz. good to have you here. >> good to be here. >> paul: a week into this, how is it going? >> it seems to me we're in a situation where for lack of a strategy we end up in the long circular debates about tactics and it's an important question, but tactical question. i think the strategic question is are we prepared to live long-term with a stalemate in libya. that doesn't mean we're prepared to put american troops on the ground to resolve this conflict, but it has to be a lot more than just this tightening a noose through economic sanctions. i think the real question that should be addressed are what kind of support are we going to give to libyan opposition, starting with the issue of sending a-- having a president in benghazi, recognizing them, agreeing about the principles and the long-term for the country and also providing them with assistan
. david kerley at the white house. >> reporter: a week after launching u.s. attacks against libya, president obama is now launching a public relations campaign, saying just today -- >> we're succeeding in our mission, make no mistake. because we acted quickly, a catastrophe has been avoided. >> reporter: much of the american public is not convinced not knowing how the mission will end. members of congress are still complaining they weren't consulted. michele bachmann in iowa today. >> now he has us engaged in a third middle east war. can any one say jimmy carter? >> reporter: former house speaker newt gingrich called for intervention, first praised the president and then flip flopped. >> the fact is on each day i was on television, i was responding to where the president was that day. and so obviously, there were contradictions. >> reporter: one of the problems for the president, he's called for gadhafi to be ousted, but the united nations resolution calls for protecting civilians, so the president's message is muddled. >> he was unfocused, undisciplined and incoherent and confusi
is preparing to take over the military campaign against moammar gadhafi. how big of a role will the u.s. play now? are we still in charge? and with war fatigue setting in and criticism from both sides of the aisle, when does the president fully explain what's at stake in libya for the united states? the white house will address is monday evening. >>> plus, fear of spreading terrorism. there were anti-government demonstrations today and in some cases violence in many arab countries, including yemen. thousands turned out calling for the ouster of the u.s.-backed president there. if the president is overthrown, who stops al qaeda in the arabian peninsula from taking over? >>> and there are increasing concerns of spreading radiation from that crippled nuclear power plant in japan with even more people now being encouraged, not forced, to get out of the area. how great is the danger? >>> plus with hispanics making up 1 in every 6 americans and one in every 1 ever 4 children, the huge emphasis on the 2012 election. >>> finally, how does anyone who actually believes they have a chance of winning the

on that later in the hour. now libya, though. the top commander of the u.s. military operation in libya says nato has agreed in principle to not only take over the no-fly zone, but also the broader mission of protecting civilians. he said it's all going to happen very soon. here's what general carter hamm said today on "the situation room." >> we expect that nato will take over the no-fly zone this weekend, and then the next piece, the third and final piece, is the mission to protect civilians. nato, it's my understanding that nato has agreed to that in principle and will this command decide on the procedures and timing of accepting that mission. but i think that will probably occur in the very near future. >> ham also said that removing moammar gadhafi from power by military means is not the aim of the mission and the coalition isn't arming the opposition. but the coalition strikes on gadhafi's mechanism of power continue. authorities say coalition fighter planes took out seven libyan tanks in 24 hours. in fact, we got this video from the british ministry of defense showing british aircraft
the wheel. assistant u.s. attorney john soroka asked the judge to impose a 20 year sentence for the disregard that ajene jones showed especially after prior traffic and substance convictions. the defense asked for mercy. >> ajene jones addressed the court turning his head slightly toward the spectators and saying to the family i am truly sorry, then turning back toward the judge adding i hope one day they find it in their hearts to forgive me. superior court judge thomas motley was unmoved grimly pointing out the defendant had been arrested 13 times in the last 10 years, had been convicted five times and had been forbidden to drive. the sentence 20 years. >> the real enemy in my opinion is not mr. jones. i think the real enemy is the easy access to drugs and i think that until and unless we can do something to stem the tide we'll have unfortunate tragedies like this again. >>> developing news tonight out of lybia, president obama will deliver a primetime address to the country on monday to explain his decisions on the libyan war. the president has been under fire from member
